This study focuses on the synthesis, characterization, and application of amphiphilic PCL-PEG-PCL/Bentonite-TBHSA (A2). The prepared of A2 nanocomposite was prepared from Algerian Bentonite modified by the intercalation of tetrabutylammonium hydrogen sulfate (TBHSA) (A1), were characterized by different techniques including Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction(XRD), (TEM),(DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA ). The removal efficiency of of methylene blue, from aqueous solutions.
The effects of the initial pH of a solution, contact time, and nanocomposite mass on the adsorption efficiency were investigated. Pseudo-first/second-order isotherms were applied to determine the efficiency of nanocomposite solid. The experimental data fitted well with the pseudo-second-order model for MB dye adsorption. The mass of nanocomposite increased, the adsorption capacity of dye increases to reach an optimal value at 0.13 g of adsorbent in pH = 6.8. The Langmuir isotherm exhibited the best fit, with an adsorption capacity equal
to 600 mg/g .
